"Local authorities, together with international organizations, are doing everything to free our kidnapped citizen," the Georgian Channel One has quoted Giorgi Shengeliya, the first deputy mayor of Zugdidi, as saying.
Yanur Rostobaya, the father of the kidnapped person, claims that his son was fishing in Inguri and did not get to the territory of Abkhazia, the "Georgia Online" reports.
